CJ stance

I've noticed that many CJs have the tires more or less flush with the fenders. Without going to wider axles, what's a good way to widen the stance? How much leeway do you have with wheel backspacing? I'm talking about with 33 or 35x12.5 tires on a 15x8 or 10 wheel.

The pre 82 CJ's (narrow track axles) will have that look. While the 82 to 86 will stick out past the flare by an inch or two. Most find this later wide track set up fine for most build ups and stability. For tall tires and big lifts, a set of wider axles can be swapped in for strengh and stability /stance. 44's out of a Scout II for example.
